Jacquie was taken from us so suddenly and we are left trying to find our way.
She was born to Ida and John Foot in Guilford, Surrey, England in 1943. She trained in nursing and immigrated to Canada in 1964 where she eventually worked as an LPN at the Royal Jubilee Hospital (Memorial Pavilion) for many years. She was known to be a hard working nurse who cared deeply for her patients and for her colleagues, many of whom she maintained strong friendships with.
Jacquie was a social butterfly, she loved to get to know people and to be involved in her neighbourhood and community. She was the Queen of the Parksville Sand Dollars, previous member of the Sooke Sirens and a current member of the Parksville Pussycats as well as an active member of the Parksville Senior’s Activity Society.
Jacquie was predeceased by her mother and father and only just recently by her loving husband of 40+ years, Bob and sadly then her dog Brandon. Her heart was broken but she was finding her way forward.
She leaves behind many friends and extended family who she loved so deeply and who meant so much to her. She will be greatly missed by her children Sarah (Pat), Kathy (Rick) and Robert as well as her grandchildren Nicole, Heidi, Leah, Trevor, Ian and Owen (and Karma, Perogie & Harley) to name a few. She will be remembered fondly by all.
Thank you to the doctors and nurses at Oceanside Urgent Care and Nanaimo General ER and ICU for doing everything that you could.
A memorial will be held at a later date. Donations to the SPCA in her name in lieu of flowers.
